Don Santry walks into the bar and into Rebecca's life. He's the repairman called into fix the bar tap. Although Don is not Rebecca's usual type, Frasier talks her into taking a chance when she states that someone like a Don is what she should be going after. Quickly, she falls head over heals, but Sam thinks she's settling for second best. He wants Rebecca to be his fall-back if in a couple of years he has not found "Mrs. Malone". Rebecca shoots back that he is an aging Lothario way past his prime. Frasier suggests to Sam, who is hurt by Rebecca's comments, that perhaps there is some truth to Rebecca's assertion about him and that he would benefit by group therapy for sexual compulsives. Sam does go to the meeting, and after a rough start, he does admit that perhaps he is no longer happy with his life. Written by Huggo

The Guy Can't Help It (#11.24)
14 July 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rebecca gets together with another guy,who is not rich and a plumber.But Frasier hooks them up.Soon she is all excited and says she loves him. But Sam wants her to stay free for him and be her security if he doesn't find anybody better.But Rebecca doesn't take it that well. And Sam faces the awakening that he is not somebody women dream of getting married to.

Well the one good part in this episode is that it has a bit of a gender reversal. Sam is the one who is not a catch because he has been with so many women. Other than that it is a pretty quiet episode. Sounds like a preparation for the big finale.
